Targeting 100 - Envisioning High Performance Hospitals
E-mail Print

Cost control, maintaining quality healing and working environments, and more sustainable, energy efficient operations are topics of many conversations in healthcare today. The University of Washington’s Integrated Design Lab, in collaboration with a team of experts in design, engineering, operations and hospital ownership have developed research directed at much higher performing buildings — targeting both energy performance and interior environmental quality, for little capital investment.

This research provides a conceptual framework and decision-making structure at a schematic design level of precision for hospital owners, architects and engineers. It offers access to design strategies and the cost implications of those strategies for new hospitals to utilize 60%
less energy.
